How Low Can The O Go?

The Democrats and their media handmaidens can spin Tuesday's disastrous defeats as much as they want, but you know things are bad for Obama when he's getting dissed by David Dinkins, easily the worst Mayor in the history of New York City. When an incompetent, feckless, pusillanimous hack like Dinkins is questioning your street cred, it's time for some introspection.
The city’s first African-American mayor blasted the country's first black president for leaving Bill Thompson in the dust in the mayor’s race this year.

“The president should’ve done more. He found time to go to Virginia, he found time to go to New Jersey and he should’ve been here,” former Mayor David Dinkins, who was in office from 1990 through 1993.

He was referring to Obama’s stumping with New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, who lost to Republican Chris Christie this week, and Virginia Democrat Creigh Deeds, who lost the gubernatorial race to GOP candidate Bob McDonnell.

By comparison, the country’s first black president gave the most lukewarm of endorsements to Thompson, who lost to Mayor Bloomberg by a mere 5 points on Tuesday.

First, Obama’s spokesman told the press on a Friday afternoon that he would support Thompson, who sought to be the city’s second black mayor, because Thompson and he are both are both Democrats.

The spokesman went on to praise Bloomberg.

Obama then gave Thompson a shout-out when he was in the city last month, saying, “Our great city comptroller, our candidate for mayor, my friend Billy Thompson is in the house.”

He gave similar shout-outs to the Democratic candidates for public advocate and comptroller.

The president never campaigned with Thompson, nor did he host any fundraisers for him.
Maybe the white part of Obama hates black people or something. Somohow this must be racist. Perhaps we need the renowned racial healer Al Sharpton to weigh in on this.

As if Dinkins questioning Obama's credibility wasn't bad enough enough, now even the hapless Governor of New York is getting in on the act.
Paterson, whose popularity currently hovers in the 20 percent range, was seriously wounded when Obama let it be known he didn't want Paterson to run because Republicans like Rudy Giuliani consistently beat him in the polls. But Obama's recent lack of success in backing local candidates, including New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, has empowered Paterson.

"The President went to New Jersey five times for Corzine and wasn't able to turn that around, so I think here in New York, New Yorkers know everything is local," said Lynch.

But that's not all Paterson is doing. He's bringing on board campaign powerhouse Harold Ickes, who was former President Bill Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff.
